Easy Like Sunday Morning...No Wait, Saturday Morning

This morning is slow, and of course, fairly empty without Zed...and although the night alone was mucho necessary, and the extra sleep was nice, it always feels like an empty house when she's not around. Grandad and Baachan are soaking up the Zed as I type.

The sun is out, the wind is whipping up whitecaps on the lake...that's right, I can see actual open lake now. The ice is nearly all gone. I have coffee. We have a brand new Apple TV that arrived yesterday. I am clean and shaven. My feet aren't freezing, and it should all add up to a nice morning...except there's no Zed.

So I've taken to finding things on the world wide webland that excite me. Like this...and this. Man, I dig me some cool stuff. Et tu? Here's some more...

There's this amazing Filipino artist, named May Ann Lucidine that I really can't get enough of. Watch this.

Want one.

Want two of these.

Watch this cool memorial to Robert Culp. When I was a kid it seemed like he was co-starring in everything. Then check out his educational history over at Wikipedia...now that was a cool guy.

Best advice ever in the history of the planet was uttered by this dude, Heinie Manush, to this dude, Johnny Pesky. When Pesky reported to Rocky Mount, North Carolina, the Red Sox Class B affiliate, and was pushing himself just a little too hard, Manush said...“Accept who you are. Maximize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses. Don’t try and be what you’re not." I'm gonna tell Zoey the exact same thing someday. Sooner than later.

I just learned a new word and I love it.

You know Dalton Trumbo? He wrote Johnny Got His Gun. He was one of the blacklisted writers back in '47...one of the Hollywood Ten. Spent time in prison. Lost everything. Got everything back. Amazing guy. Amazing. I read an interview with Donald Sutherland in which he said that the last words he ever heard Dalton utter were, "Don't forget to be happy." Second best advice in the history of the planet.

I heard the name Truly the other day, and it resonated deeply with me. I loved it. It was the character's name of the female lead in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I'd forgotten what an amazing film that was...is. Sometimes you forget the best things in your life while you're still busy looking for them.
